Some things don’t just happen naturally. For example, running a race requires preparation and practice to build endurance. Staying healthy requires some combination of a balanced diet, exercise, and even vitamins. Similarly, if you want your skin to be healthy and to function properly, you need to be proactive with your skincare routine to ensure your skin can handle the challenges it may face like harsh weather or dehydration.
Unfortunately, many people find themselves reacting to problems like dry, itchy skin only when they begin experiencing symptoms. But a reactive approach can lead to a never ending cycle of symptoms and can even result in worsened symptoms or discomfort.
